So... hate skeeters, right?

There might be a new way to keep the little critters from biting you: Making your blood deadly.

A regimen of Ivermectin for three days makes your blood poisonous to mosquitos for a month - will this be added to doctor's recommendations for people traveling to areas with malaria?

(Taking it regularly enough to last all summer, unfortunately, pushes the balance of side effects as opposed to good effects too far the other way. Hopefully we'll get a West Nile vaccine soon).

I'll see everyone at AwesomeCon this weekend!
